Whangarei Art Museum information
At the Te Manawa Hub information centre , Whangarei's public gallery has an interesting permanent collection, the star of which is a 1904 Māori portrait by Goldie. Also planned is the Hundertwasser Arts Centre , based on architectural plans by the late Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. See www.yeswhangarei.co.nz for details of the campaign to raise support and funding for the project. A model of the proposed design can be seen at Hundertwasser HQ , a pop-up store designed to increase awareness of the project.
